New Canon G7xII for Vlogging
I have a Canon G10 I bought many years ago when it first came out and I love that little camera! It is still in great shape but I realized I wanted a camera that worked a little better for vlogging - one that had a screen that could pop up and out for selfie videos, one that had audio with the playback and a touch screen would be nice, too. So I upgraded to the Canon G7xII. It still feels a little weird to walk around Georgetown with a camera pointed at myself while I talk to it. But I am getting

CityCenterDC Summer Decorations
I used to walk through CityCenterDC all the time when I was going to Goethe for German classes. Goethe has since moved and isn't near CityCenter anymore. So we happened to be in the area the other night and I told Chris I wanted to walk through the shops and get some Cereal Milk ice cream from Momofuku Milk Bar (and a side note - if you haven't had Cereal Milk ice cream you have to try it!

A Maryland Sidewalk
There is something weird about Maryland (and Virginia seems to have this problem, too). There are hardly any sidewalks! Look at almost ANY neighborhood in Maryland and you will notice it.

Washington Kastles Tennis
Every year we try to attend at least one Washington Kastles tennis match. The best part is the matches are indoors at the GW Basketball Arena. Where else can you watch tennis and be nice and cool in the summertime? It is perfect! The matches are a little less casual and formal like other tennis matches. They play music and encourage you to cheer (when the players are not in play). And another great part is the stadium is pretty small so every seat is a good seat! Chris has a friend that used

Och Aye - Well THEY are Scottish!
Only a Scot would see this and laugh! I was walking home from the hospital with James when I spotted this Washington, DC tag and I started laughing. I started to walk away when I realized I should stop and take a picture of it.
If you aren't Scottish, I will explain the Scotticism:
Och aye is a part of "Och aye the noo" which pretty much translates to "Oh yes the now" or "Oh yes just now."
A funny story: When Chris first met my Mum's side of the family I could tell that he didn't
